The release is reportedly 5384.4, the same release given out at WinHEC 2006, not too surprising :woot:

To download through download manager

Direct Downloads

Windows Vista Beta 2: English 32 Bit Edition

Windows Vista Beta 2: English 64 Bit Edition

Enjoy! [Please note that the Deutsch, Japanese and German Editions will be found thru the first link]
I just didnt feel like linking ALL of the direct links.

Update:

The Customer Preview Program is now closed.

We have reached our program capacity and no new orders are being accepted. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Be patient guys, as the servers are bombarded. And they probably will be for the next few days. As for product keys, I will not supply them. That is for you to find out. I have an alternative. :woot: lol

I would rather wait for the final release.

For now, I'll stick with the skins, and mods. :D

I'd rather have the beta from Microsoft than torrents or stick with skins and mods(That might screw up your PC even worse). I'm sure the server will be available tonight :)

Make sure you guys make a backup or put vista on a seperate partition :)

Start>Run>diskmgmt.msc

Glad I could help guys, and @ JDelta, it's only for testing purposes, I would also not use it as a standalone OS, definitely gonna get it once it's completed.

WHAT THE>... that is one fast connection! my fastest download was like 250kb/s...and that was a torrent when the server wasn't busy....

i will most probably download it when i get my new notebook in october...hopefully it still would be available for download =P and hopefully my new notebook can run vista...unlike the one i am using now...sux.

the thing i noticed the cpp beta expires on the 1st of June 2007 so does that mean that microsoft have moved back the final date again!
